In the end, this will result in you getting another tattoo that you’ll have to live with. So, put no less thought into the design; in fact, it may warrant greater consideration. Your artist may be able to offer some suggestions, but it’s best to bring some of your own as well. Be aware that cover ups of cover ups are rarely ever possible, so this one truly is forever.
There are limitations with cover up tattoos, for example your new tattoo will need to be bigger than the existing design. The new one may also need to feature very dark colours in order to make sure the unwanted ink is obscured.
Due to the potential colours or complexity involved, your cover up tattoo may take considerable time, or require multiple sittings. Your artist will be able to advise you about the cost and practicalities of your particular design.
